Albuquerque/Santa Fe, NM Travel DX Log

I spent several nights in Albuquerque, NM in October 2019. Santa Fe is 58 miles away from Albuquerque and shares most of the same FM dial. While in Santa Fe one day during my visit to central New Mexico, I also DXed the FM dial. Although the distance between the two cities is usually too far for me to include the stations in the same log, I made an exception because of the vast similarities in dials in both cities, save for a few differing translators and LPFMs on the same frequency.

Log last updated: 10/21/19

All station information in black text is as first logged. Changes heard upon subsequent loggings of the same signal are noted in red text. Signals logged in a car have an asterisk (*) next to the mileage. RDS and HD Radio screenshots are added below as received and may reflect different iterations of the same signal. Radios used: Airspy R2, Sangean HDR-14, Insignia NS-HD01, rental car radio. Visit my DX Logs page to view my home/main DX logs and travel DX logs from dozens of other cities.
